The deceased are Mila Deb, 20, and her son Protik Deb. Mila’s husband Pintu Deb has absconded from the police.
Madhabpur police station OC Moktadir Alam confirmed the matter and said: “Family members and neighbours broke into Mila’s house around 10am on Monday and found the bodies hanging from the ceiling.”
On information, Madhabpur SI Ashish Kumar Moitri went to the scene around 1pm the same day and recovered the bodies.
OC Moktadir said: “We are presuming that the incident occurred due to a family row.
“We are not sure whether this is a murder or a suicide,” the OC said.
“However, as Pintu is a fugitive from us, we are assuming he might have killed his wife,” he said.
According to the neighbours, the couple had been having a family dispute for a long time.
